Teenagers who smoke marijuana but not cigarettes are more likely to get good grades, play sports, and live with both parents than those who use both marijuana and tobacco, according to a new Swiss study.

The researchers concluded, "Cannabis-only adolescents show better functioning than those who also use tobacco."

Of course, this study isn't generally something you'll see on CNN or other U.S. mainstream media outlets, unlike U.S. government-funded studies that purport to show marijuana's harmful effects, which always seem to get extensive news coverage.

That said, Fox News has an online story here, which you should "Digg" to make it one of the biggest news stories of the day. If you have a moment right now, please do so without delay.

Other than the Fox News story, only Reason Magazine's blog and United Press International have covered the study which was just published in the November issue of Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine. You can view the abstract of the study (and purchase the full study) here.

The study compared teens who (1) smoked both marijuana and cigarettes, (2) smoked marijuana but not cigarettes, and (3) used neither.

The study found that teens who smoke marijuana were more likely to have a good relationship with their friends than teens who didn't use marijuana or cigarettes.

Compared to those who smoked cigarettes in addition to marijuana, the marijuana-using group was also less likely to have been drunk in the past 30 days, less likely to have used marijuana before the age of 15, less likely to have smoked marijuana more than once or twice during the previous 30 days, and less likely to use other illegal drugs.

Other differences between marijuana-only users and abstainers were pretty minor. For instance, the marijuana-only group was more likely to skip class but still had the same level of good grades as the abstainers. And the marijuana-only group wasn't any more likely than the abstainers to be depressed.

To be clear, MPP doesn't recommend that teens use marijuana, but we do think that public policies that put teens and adults in prison for using marijuana are misguided and therefore should be reformed.

To that end, MPP continues to barrel forward changing our nation's marijuana laws, state by state. Will you consider making a donation to support our efforts?

I am grateful for anything you can give. Thank you ...

...this was by fox news. Can you believe that?

Wait - what was I just talking about?

the only bad thing i have noticed about smoking weed frequently was some slight memory loss.

but when im high i can actually sit down and have a conversation with my parents and actually understand them and where they are coming from. i love weed.

well when it comes down to it anything u can smoke is esentially bad for u not all bad but smoke in your lungs in never good no matter wat smoke it may be now i odnt know ne thing about the negitive affects on teens as opposed to ne one else but im guessing that since teens are not fully matured it does put somewhat of a more durastic affect on a younger persons body than persay someone older and done growing both mind and body

I totally agree with the study. I only wish the US government would consider that. I can actually compare people in my school who smoke cigarettes with those who only smoke weed and it is so true. I only smoke marijuana and have pretty decent grades but once in a while I skip class. But whatever, Im cool with it

I have to agree that smoking is bad for your lungs no matter what the substance.

I wonder if marijuana is a safe and effective antidepressant for teens. It's to bad our government has such a low opinion of marijuana that it wouldn't even try it for that. Such a waste. I guess we'll never know in this Reefer Madness era.
